Over the last two weeks, I’ve been working closely with Star to freshen up Nubbytwiglet.com. After nearly 3 years and close to 1,000 posts, it was time to implement a slight face lift. Besides the obvious changes including a Twitter feed and a wider center column, I thought I’d point out a few new additions.
After three years of blogging, the archives have become overloaded and it’s easy to overlook some of the great content that’s been posted in the past. To help alleviate this, a section of my all-time favorite articles called Resources has been added to the top navigation. This is still a work in progress and the lists will grow as I have a chance to comb through the archives further.
There is now a dedicated section in the top navigation specifically for advertising. All paid ad space has been upgraded to a skyscraper format (160 x 600 pixels) and will be more visible since it has been relocated to the top left sidebar.
One of my favorite changes is the Graphic Design section. To make more room for showcasing projects, I had Star remove the sidebars. The width of nearly 900 pixels has allowed me to spread out and enlarge much of my work. This is also still a work in progress as I reformat and add more projects over the next few weeks.
A big thank you goes out to everyone who has stuck around for the last three years and generously offered feedback and support. It’s very much appreciated. Cheers to three more years!
